Manchester City and United in two-horse Premier League title race?

Luke Shaw

United made nine changes from the side that started against Everton on Sunday but still fielded a strong lineup that underlined Jose Mourinho's attacking options.

Jose Mourinho's side beat Championship team Burton Albion 4-1 at Old Trafford on Wednesday to secure its last-16 trip to the Liberty Stadium in late October.

Ahead of Wednesday's game Mourinho said this about his squad: "We have some fantastic players who haven't played at all so far this season and others who haven't yet been selected to start a game because the team is playing so well".

United continued their fine start to the new season, and look to have solved their main issue from last season of scoring goals.

Rashford now has 24 goals in 79 appearances for United and also opened up his competitive global account for England, earlier this month when he scored the victor during England's World Cup qualifier against Slovakia, at Wembley.

Chelsea smashed Nottingham Forest with 5-1, at Stamford Bridge, Manchester United was convincing against Burton Albion 4-1, also at home, while Arsenal and Manchester City had a little bit of trouble against Doncaster and West Bromwich Albion.

"We gave no chance to the opponent".

Away from the baffling talk of potentially removing one of England's three cup competitions, Mourinho lauded his forward line for their performances against the Championship outfit at Old Trafford. The Saints have netted in just two of their five games this season and Pellegrino will know his team would be a much bigger threat if they could become more prolific in front of goal.

Manchester United go up against Southampton tomorrow.

Rashford's two goals were added to by Jesse Lingard and Martial, with Burton grabbing a last-ditch consolation through Lloyd Dyer.

Although the Manchester United manager wasn't happy about the midweek fixture, his team against Burton still possessed 11 worldwide players.

Mourinho called it a positive night all-round for United as his much-changed side progressed without picking up an injury or so much as a card.

United advance in the League Cup.

Manchester United travel to Southampton looking to extend their winning run to four matches in all competitions and maintain a place at the top of the Premier League table.
